bay area, experiencing a recovery from the economic downturn. we have to depend upon our own, san francisco-based companies to grow our economies. the years passed, we waited for state and federal funds, no longer there. president obama stated we are not into your marks anymore. he and congress are cutting a lot of that off. jerry brown, every time i see him, it is like, what else are you going to cut? if he does not get his way, there is going to be even more hurt. we are no longer dependent upon those streams of revenue. we have to create our own. i only know one way. have a solid relationship with the businesses who want to grow, employee, helped make the city successful. that is how we are going to do it. where wanted do it on your own, but we are going to do it with your innovation. i want to invite you, on a
number of levels, as part of this relationship, we have problems in our city to solve. i cannot solve them with just city government employees. i think the way we are starting to think, we will get you into helpless to some hack-a-thons, think about how to get muni better operating. even the affordable housing debate we are having. come and help us think outside the box. maybe we can think of better solutions. i know you want the city to succeed. if it is successful, you will feel that much more committed to being part of the city. we invite you to be part of that. we do that through s.f. city. my chief innovation officer is here. we are one of the only cities in the country -- i hired a chief innovation officer right from the mayor's officer -- from the
mayor's office. he is right on the pulse about technology and how to contribute to the quality of life and our city. one of the ideas i have, i get to start a task force with all of the mayors across the country. all of the other mayors for dissipate, -- participate, hundreds. we get to advise the president and congress as to what our cities need. part of that, i ask them, how about i start a technology and innovation task force for all of the mayor's tax introduced companies like dropbox to other mayors across the country so they can take advantage of technology. they may not have the kind of creative environment that we have in san francisco. i know new york, boston, gainesville, florida is trying to get it. chicago, emanuel is trying to create a technology center.
we have been successful already because we knew this would be our strength. we want to provide the platform for the mess -- the rest of the mayors across the country to gauge your expertise. if you have new products and services, we can apply them to the problems in inner cities throughout the country. we would like to offer it as a venue for technology companies to exhibit what they're doing. last year, we did s.f. park. other mayors came out to me and asked how did parking their resolve with a technology application? it is a great thing. you use to run around trying to look for a parking space. now, before you get into your car, you know where you are going. if you want to find our the best parking is, where you are going, visit dropbox, phil's, you can
find parking spaces available in real time. these are some of the advancements that we're doing. i am so glad to help you celebrate the opening of a great space, the improved and increased space that you have here. watch yourself grow. you are about 100 today. hopefully, in a year or two, you will be 500, he will fill up the space, and you will negotiate up and down stairs. congratulations on the awards, the expansion, on having a successful company. i'm going to leave with the panda. [laughter] thank you very much. [applause] >> i think we are going to open it up for some questions.
everybody is so shy in social media. go ahead. >> the question was, the lottery system is very unpredictable. you cannot plan. it is all about lot -- luck. i am a strong candidate for neighborhood schools. i would like to work out a long- term change so that we can get strong neighborhood schools at all the different levels, every neighborhood. i do not know if you know this. i have been around for about 22 years. part of my job was being dpw director.
i did that for five years. i got to know, pick up trash, see every neighborhood in san francisco. one of the things i felt strongly about in my administration was building strong communities. part of that is to have those schools so that you are not cutting across town to get to the school of your choice. you have good abbott -- good academics there. we are working with the school board and getting the resources to do that and create more schools. in fact, we are working with some great philanthropists to create a great school in mission bay. there were some big grant writer is to try to get that done. is it thispbox? any questions you have about quality of life here, what we can do, the ideas we have shared?
the question was, more about bicycle planning and dedicated roadways for the city. i am a member of the bicycle coalition. they are talking with me all the time about how it is. right now, we have been focused on making sure that everybody is safe on the roads, pedestrians, car drivers, bicyclists. having said that, we are going to expand more of the lanes. we have a great chance of doing that. last year, the voters, with your help, passed a great bond they gave us $248 million to redo and resurface a lot of our bad streets. you will have a lot smoother lines to ride on.
riding a bike, some of the worst thing is hitting all of these utility trenches and things that pop up. having said that, we are working with both the coalition and the transportation administration to figure out where all of the key commute lanes are and to work with you. i would love you to send my staff your opinions about the best routes to get to work and get home from work. coming down here to the area, from all over parts of the city, would be a great way to do that. there is a lot of traffic coming down here. we have to figure out where the safest, most efficient routes would be to get over here. we are always very open to those routes as we create a central subway and some other modes of transportation. we are very open to that. i cannot tell you exactly which streets, but i think we are a
few weeks from opening the new jfk route. we have a dedicated green line with in golden gate park and it will follow jfk. it is neat because we segregated the bike route from the car lang. if you live on that side of town, in a few weeks, you will be very happy. yeah, as you know, the numbers that came out about the initial estimates to do a bike lane on
our side of the bridge is something like $100 million. that is very frustrating because i would like to see other engineers design something that might be more palatable financially. i do not think we have figured it out yet. it is going to be pressure building as we get to the opening of bay bridge. i would think, since we are talking about increasing ferries for the rebuild of treasure island and america's cup, i think the ports with love more ferry service. -- would love more ferry service. we could have treasure island get more dedicated ferry service. it would be great if we could do that. meanwhile, we will try to figure out if there could be something else that could be engineered on the existing bay bridge.

or will it feel cold and electronic? >> the imagery will change. there will be four different sets. it is a two dimensional image. it is stretched out into three dimensions. the device is part of the experience. you cannot experience the image without the device as being part of what you are seeing. whereas with the tv you end up ignoring it. i make gallery work more self and budget and public art work where i have to drop this of
indulgence and think about how people will respond. and one of the things i was interested in the work and also a little fearful of, it is not until you get to the first and second floor were the work is recognizable as an image. it is an exploration and perception is what it is. what are you seeing when you look at this image? one of the things that happens with really low resolution images like this one is you never get the details, so it is always kind of pulling you in kind of thing. you can keep watching it. i think this work is kind of experience in a more analytical way. in other words, we look at an
>> hello. 9 judge terri l. jackson. the court is now recruiting prospective civil grand jurors. our goal is to develop a pool of candidates that is inclusive of all segments of our city's population. >> the jury conducts investigations and publishes findings and recommendations. these reports them become a key part of the civic dialog on how we can make san francisco a better place to live and work. >> i want to encourage anyone that is on the fence, is considering participating as a grand jury member, to do so. >> so if you are interested in our local city government and would like to work with 18 other enthusiastic citizens committed to improving its operations, i encourage you to consider applying for service
